The principle enemies of Christianity, according to St. Paul, are spiritual strongholds and those ideological arguments which run contrary to the wisdom of Christ. The antagonistic religious, philosophical, and political systems opposing Christ are easily observable and can be traced throughout western history. The Rise of Western Lawlessness documents the progression of man-centric thought, from ancient times to the present, so that God's people might "bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ."
This book is written in a narrative non-fiction style and includes powerful Bible verses to contrast God's thoughts with the feeble thoughts of man. The narrative has been prayerfully assembled to lead the reader on a journey of discovery through 3,000 years of western development. Historical references guide the reader through all of the concepts needed for understanding the problem of lawlessness. Lawlessness is mentioned in 2nd Thessalonians as an ungodly state of civilization that will exist at the end of the age, and the Lawless One is typically equated with the Antichrist. The Book of Romans describes fallen man's slavery to uncleanness as "lawlessness leading to more lawlessness." At this crucial time in human history it is imperative that Christians recognize lawlessness and understand its destructive nature.

Paperback Edition and Smashwords ebooks. As America drifts unwittingly into the murky waters of relativism, the Pilgrims' faith is in danger of shipwreck.

Christian philosopher C.W. Steinle pierces the darkness of western lawlessness with the brilliant light of Biblical truth. Chapter by chapter the strongholds of ancient and modern Humanism crumble beneath the weight of honest evidence and sound logic.

Part I explores what the Apostle Paul meant by calling lawlessness a mystery. The second chapter introduces some of the devil’s most effective spiritual programs for undermining the Christian faith. The third chapter exposes these strongholds of darkness with the light of the testimony of the living God. Part I concludes with an introduction to the wisdom of man expressed by the Classical philosophers of Ancient Greece.
Part II looks into the Institutional Church and its failures, which were sufficient to open the door to honest criticism. These chapters do not present a thorough history of the Church; but they do provide enough information for the reader to gain an understanding of the disasters that spawned the Renaissance, Reformation, and Enlightenment.
Each chapter of Part III increases the reader's insight producing stunning revelations - epiphanies the reader will never forget. Who is the God of the Bible and what does His kingdom look like? He is the God of law and order. His government and His chain of authority on earth are modeled after the Godhead. Part III concludes by addressing the current confusion regarding God's laws and His grace. Do the Mosaic laws still apply? If so, how can Christians know which ones to obey?
Part IV brings the knowledge gleaned from all the previous chapters to a laser-sharp focus. This fourth section reveals the morbid destiny reached by metaphysics when it is carried to its logical end. Most readers will be also be surprised to learn of the demonic foundation of today's common law. The Humanists are determined to implement their limited and issue-specific theories to create their own law and order - but they can never be perfected without enslaving mankind.
Part V entertains some of the more plausible conspiracy theories concerning the organizations which might be employed by Satan to prepare the way for the Lawless One. Many Christians would hesitate to say that the end of the age is at hand. But the sudden swell in lawlessness and Satan's aggressive campaign against the Church certainly support the suspicion that Satan knows that his time is short. How much of the present attack against conservative Christians is directly from Satan, and how much is the work of sinister societies?
